Victoria Fleet Runs an August Training Camp

Bill Marshall

Nine members of the Victoria Fleet, plus Matt Koblenzar, a 2.4mR sailor from Milwaukee, participated in our August training camp.
On Friday afternoon, Chris Anstey organized on the water drills to practice boat handling and sail trim in what turned out to be breezy conditions. After sailing, the RVicYC Food and Beverage team provided a delicious dinner on the patio for sailors and spouses.
On Saturday Alex Fox, a very accomplished local sailor, was our guest coach.  With light air conditions in the Cadboro Bay, Alex led us through exercises focusing on starting techniques, upwind and downwind boat handling skills, and concluded the day with practice races. A nice northerly breeze settled in the bay on Sunday, enabling Fleet member Mark Brown and his son Jeremy to set an excellent course and run 5 races.
All in all another fun and informative training camp. Next up, the 2.4 mR Pacific Coast Championship Regatta September 8 to 10, 2023.



Hurricane Idalia Damages Charlotte Harbor Yacht Club Marina

Martin Holland, 1 September 2023


I wanted to provide you with some information/pics.  As you can see, we have had major damage to the Club’s Marina. The Club itself is fine.

We will need at least 4 – 6 weeks to evaluate and provide a 2.4mR Regatta Series plan.
Please, pass along the message that we will provide an update as soon as we can but now, we really need the 4-6 weeks.

Sail Fast,

Report from the 2.4 mR Great Lakes Championship

Peter Eagar, August 2023

Another terrific weekend of sailing here in Toronto at the 2.4mR Great Lakes Championship Regatta.

Winds were light and shifty, and current was strong, making for some fun and tricky races.

In all we had 9 boats and we managed to complete 6 races.

Congratulations to Darrell Suderman 1st. Place, Allan Leibel 2nd. Place, and then me in 3rd. Place.  After the drop race Allan and I were tied with 11 points each. Allan had won 2 races and I won 1, so he beat me on the tie breaker.

Thanks very much to our terrific Race Committee and wonderful volunteers!
